Here in the Midwest we are experiencing a wonderful spring. The weather yesterday was a balmy 58* with lots of rain. Unfortunately it’s December and we should be experiencing snow and winter. Most of the ski resorts are having great difficulty finding days to make snow and some are even thinking of creating a new sport for their hill, called Standing!
We always need to be working on our skills, whether medical or transport. Who says that this must be boring. Throughout the country this season many patrols will challenge themselves to silly competitions and challenges that on the surface seem like just fun. But through these fun games a lot is learned. Switching personnel, moving through obstacles, speedy yet safe transport. Patient stability. We can discover new techniques and strengthen our current skills through play.
Plan to spend some time playing this season.
